Ian Haysom, Grandfathered: Dispatches from the Trenches of Modern Grandparenthood (Victoria: Heritage House Publishing, 2020), 200 pages, $22.95 (paper).

I skipped the grandfather stage of life and went straight to great grandfathering, but that didn’t mean I missed the charms of grandparenting so humourously described in Ian Haysom’s memoir, Grandfathered. Most of all, I have not missed those moments with my great granddaughter Calliope in which, like Haysom, I become the beneficiary of a three-year-old’s greater wisdom.
